The course introduces knowledge about climate models and how are they used to understand the climate change due to human activity and natural variation.
The students will learn the climate forcings under different climatic conditions, from past, present and future, as well as climate response to these forcings. The course includes practical exercise on spatial and temporal analysis of output from climate model simulations.
The course is part (elective course) of the Master's Programme in Polar Landscapes and Quaternary Climate but can also be read as a separate course.
Planned teaching (methods) for the course, linked to Covid-19 and the Swedish Public Health Agency's recommendations, will be presented at the Department's website on February 28.
The course includes practical exercise on spatial and temporal analysis of output from climate model simulations.
- Climate Models, Experiment Design and Data Analysis, 3 credits
- Project, 4.5 credits
Instruction consists of lectures, seminars, exercises and project work.
